Considering the current pandemic of COVID-19 where no effective preventive and curative medicine is available, a healthy immune system is one of the most important weapons. There are several vitamins and trace elements which are essential for the normal functioning of the immune system. Furthermore, supplementation of these have shown positive impact on enhancing immunity in viral infections. Vitamin A and D supplementation has increased the humeral immunity of paediatric patients following influenza vaccination. High dose zinc supplementation has shown immune enhancement in patients with torquetenovirus (TTV). Similarly, selenium supplementation has shown a positive response after an influenza vaccination challenge.
